Hillary Urges Caucusing 11 Days Too Late

From her fans at the Politico:

Democratic presidential candidate U.S. Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY) thanks a supporter for signing a pledge card at the Iowa Veterans Home during a campaign stop in Marshalltown, Iowa, December 23, 2007.

Clinton supporters urged to caucus … 11 days late

December 23, 2007

The error: The date on which supporters are urged to caucus, Jan. 14, is 11 days after the caucuses.

It appears to be an old card, printed well before the Iowa Democratic Party settled on the Jan. 3 date in late October. Josie e-mails that at Clinton’s second event, the cards had Jan. 14 crossed out and replaced with the correct date.

In any case, it’s an odd organizational glitch. Supporter cards are the central pieces of the candidates’ Iowa operations, and candidates and their staffs are constantly urging Iowans to sign them, in the hope that this public pledge of support will guarantee that Democrats stick with their pledge in the public caucus situation.

Still, to my mind the real scandal is not this very understandable error. No, the real problem is what passes these days for non-error.

Look at more closely at the categories listed for potential caucus attendees:

What a gorgeous mosaic.

But whatever happened to just being an American?
